STAPLES -- Learn the steps to build a rock garden, plants best suited for the rockery and how to maintain the garden at a Living Legacy Garden twilight workshop at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Central Lakes College Ag Center's Living Legacy Garden classroom in Staples.
The Ag Center is 2 1/2 miles north of Staples on County Road 30 and then a half mile west of the Central Lakes College main campus on County Road 2.
Eleanor Burkett, Cass County Extension educator, will lead the discussion.
If weather permits, participants will walk through the garden and explore the changes taking place as the garden is developed. More than 60 fruit trees have been planted in the orchard this spring and work continues on the shade garden, therapeutic area and the herb garden.
Future twilight workshops at Living Legacy Garden are scheduled for 6 p.m. the third Thursday of July, September and October. Workshop topics include Ponds, Basic Landscaping, Shade Gardening, Orchard Management & Varieties, Holiday Crafting with Dried Flowers, and more. Several educational events will be held during August, as well.
